Hello everyone,

I'm having an issue which has quickly become a major headache, and maybe I can get some feedback or you can let me know if you're also having this issue.

I'm running Wordfast 3.2 for Mac and working with a large (3.2 mb) InDesign .IDML file. I've been able to open it in Wordfast, and have been able to translate and successfully save my translation memory. I'm done with the project. It's time to turn it in to the client in .IDML format. Naturally, I go to File - Save Translated File.

When I do, what I get is the translated .IDML file in my Finder which cannot be opened because it contains Zero Bytes. In other words, it's getting corrupted in the process of saving the translated file. I've already tried this with smaller files and it has worked, so the size of this file might be the issue.

HELP!! I'm on a deadline and I'm done and READY to turn this project in if I could only SAVE IT!!

Appreciate it.

Sebastian Zaldibar

Placeables? Jul 4, 2013

Did you do a TransCheck to see if all the placeables are there?

Good luck!!!
